ISTANBUL - A Syrian passenger plane took off from the Turkish capital Ankara on Thursday after being grounded for several hours by Turkish authorities on suspicion that it was carrying military equipment destined for Syria.

The Turkish authorities seized some of the cargo from the plane, which was en route from Moscow to Damascus when it was forced to land, but gave no details of what they had found on board.
